Municipal election: Chahed observatory concerned about number and nature of violations during campaign

The Observatory for Election Control and Support for Democratic Change (Chahed) said it was “very worried” about the number and nature of violations during the campaign period for the municipal elections which started on April 14 and continues until May 4th.

In a statement Wednesday, the observatory said that its coordinators and observers, deployed in all constituencies, have notably noted violations related to the non-neutrality of the administration. They reported the presence of the Minister of Culture in his capacity, at the opening of an “election festival” on behalf of his party in the municipality of Rjim Maatoug (Kebili), April 15.

The observatory deplores the presence, in some meetings of political parties, of a discourse inciting hatred and violence in the municipalities of Mornag and Rades on April 14 and 15, 2018.

On a candidate list in the municipality of Metlaoui, only the photos of male candidates were displayed, those of women are not included, report observers.

The Chahed observatory also observes the holding of meetings without informing the electoral Authority, the non-respect of the deadlines for their holding, and the non-respect of the time allotted to electoral activities.

The team of the observatory denounce the phenomenon of destruction of the electoral posters in many constituencies (Makthar and El Krib, Ariana city, Raoued, Tozeur ….)
